For me, under 100.
For me, under 100.
Considering if we were to invite our immediate family only and their SO’s that would be 18 people alone. And there are must haves above that. and then if I invite my one aunt, he has to invite his 7 etc…
Therefore absolute minimum and still pissing people off would be over 50 people for us.
75 or less. 100 is average. 200+ is large. There is no way that 200 is small by any means and most folks don’t know that many people. As a guest, I’ve been to quite a few that were 25 or less, but most were over 200.
Anything under 100 is small to me!
I wish I could have a small (under 50 people) wedding. We each are inviting about 30 friends and then family, +1’s, etc takes it up to 90. We’re obligated to invite family because my dad is paying, but I hope a lot of them can’t make it since I don’t even really know them. I’m really hoping our final head count is around 75 at the most.
I’m in the 100 and less camp.
We had 175 guests and in our circles thats a medium sized wedding because most people go for 250 or more
I’m having 50 people attend my wedding, and I consider that big! I am having panic attacks about how many people are coming! 50 people is a lot of people! My family is very large, but I cut anybody I see only once a year and managed to make it smaller. A small wedding IMO would be less than twenty.
It is all relative- From the choices given- I think 50 and under is small. To me, I guess anything over that is huge! I think small is two people. 50 people is a lot! To me, a wedding is an intimate experience. However, different cultures, different locales, circles, so many variables.
i would love to have a 50 ppl or less wedding but his family alone is 40 or 50 and they are all really close… so im stuck… but i will not go over 150… that too big…
I’d say 35-75 people is small and under 35 would be intimate.
We had 65 at our wedding and after removing immediate family we were looking at maybe 40 other family members/friends.
I think around 50 is small. 100-200 is pretty average. Anything over 200 is geting large.
But then, our guest list of 130 is all immediate family (1st cousins, direct aunts and uncles- no extensions farther than that), so I have a hard time judging it. I’m having family only… lol.
We invited 80 (which I thought was medium-ish), and wound up with 55. So I figure ours was small. (I’d say maybe 70 is the most I’d call small, I think.)
I think we’ll probably end up around 100 or just over.
I want a small-moderate size wedding, as does the Mr. Our goal is to keep it as close to 100 as possible (it keeps creeping up). I do think that 100 sounds like a big number but doesn’t seem like an overwhelming amount of people once you are there (based on other weddings I have been to). Anywho, when i hear “small wedding”, my first instinct would be to think 50-75 people.
